Kollam: SNDP Yogam general secretary Vellappally Natesan, who recently floated a new party called Bharat Dharma Jana Sena (BDJS), Saturday said there would not be any compromise on the party symbol of folded hands.
“The Congress has approached the Election Commission and the commission has sought an explanation from us. During the hearing, we will convey our opinion,” said Vellapally.
“The Congress’s hand and BDJS’s folded hand symbols are different. Though the symbols of CPI(M) and CPI look similar, the EC had approved them,” he said.
Vellappally further said the Prime Minister is arriving at Sivagiri after coming to know about the spiritual significance of the place but not to visit the swamis.
“The swamis said the PM was not invited and it is quite worrisome. They could have avoided the word. It was not expected from persons of their stature,” he added.
